Yr9-Wk44 My Notes

Hi all (% I'm going to make an attempt to jump in here again at this point. I've been really feeling the need to write a song lately. Problem is, I've been severely blocked for the longest of times. I did manage to churn out what I feel is right up there with my finest when I wrote my last one. Alas...

Re: Week 43 The story of you and me

Hi (% Well, for the most part, I understood the story. In no way did I think it was two secret lovers. In fact, I related to the story quite a bit. There was one confusing part for me, and that would be the 2nd verse - The, 'breaking all the rules' verse. At first it seemed to me to be a reconciliat...

Re: Finish on guitar body and fretboard

Thankx, Imalone.... Not so sure I'm "back" just yet though (% Anyway - Had to go back 'home' to Chicago this last weekend to see my dad. Last time I was there was July of '10. Since then, he's acquired a new guitar amp. So first night there, he pulls it out for me and we plug in the 71 Strat.... Not...

Re: Finish on guitar body and fretboard

50's Strats - Yeah. Not at all like the Standard Strat we know of today. Very much unrefined (% With quality bouncing around from great to poor and back again. Leo can make any claim he wants to about the mistakes he made with those early models.... Truth is that he was a notorious cheap-skate! And ...

Re: Finish on guitar body and fretboard

Hehe - sorry for all the confusion. What I said was: "Well, while I haven't been contributing much around here lately, I still check in from time-to-time. I have to say that what I've been reading here the last few months is absolutely astounding!" So, it wasn't exclusive to posts from this thread. ...

Re: Finish on guitar body and fretboard

Hey, Chris (% Sorry mate - I was really referring to other/older posts around here that went something like: The wood and finish and anything else that makes up an electric guitar doesn't matter the slightest in the scheme of things.... Scientifically speaking, only the pups affect the sound as they...

Re: Guitar body made of more than 1 piece of wood

Hi (% As far as I remember, the original 50's Tele's were made from one piece bodies, while the Strats were made from two piece. It's been said that the one piece bodies on the Tele's contributed to their more solid sound, while the two piece bodies of the Strat's contributed to their more transpare...

Re: Why do Strats Sound Different?

Hey, Notes (% Well, the way I see it the acoustic properties of the guitar (Fingers, woods, hardwares, strings) work together to produce the note/sound. The pickup is the electronic translator of that sound. And we hear this interpretation thru the amp speaker. I mean.... You can hear a guitar witho...

Re: Why do Strats Sound Different?

Hey everyone (% Well, while I totally *agree with Notes/Chris on the pup adjustments.... I have to say that on a Strat at least, the woods are pretty important as far as tonality is concerned. (*I fiddle with my pup adjustments all the time.... Especially if you change amps. Though I consider amps a...

Yr9-Wk2? Distant Isolation

Hey, everyone (% Week 2 was about, changes - This could be about that. As it's about someone caught in the uncertainty of a changing relationship. No matter though - I was just SO EXCITED that I actually wrote another song, finally! I thought I'd share it with the old SSG group (% my heart can't bel...
